Can we stop trying to process players...

I think it’s unfair for people on this board to advocate for the processing of players without any type of information strictly off of rankings on the recruiting websites

The same people are up in arms when a player decommit. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

The same thing happened last year when the message board recruiting experts were looking to process TK McClendon and Cordale Flott and telling Quentin Skinner to pay his own way, but yet they all were on board for signing day.

So for the people who want to cut Berry, Johnson, Ford and whoever else is at the bottom of the class according to 247 and rivals, cut it out. These are kids who have given their commitment to the school, unless you have any inclination of a coach not honoring that commitment, you saying they shouldn’t be in the class adds no value and actually gives the fan base a bad name.

Again, I am not for processing by the coaches if they feel like some agreement has been broken as far as grade, development etc... I am against the chucklenuts on this board taking info out of their butt and trying to name players because they don't coincide with some 247 ranking.

If they can get better players in the class then they should 100% be processed

I'm all for us, on this message board, not naming specific guys we think should be processed.

But I'm absolutely in favor of the coaches processing guys who either haven't developed like they thought or could be replaced with someone they think is better.

If you think that we should process players than you shouldn’t take commitments from the players in the first place.

Unless they break the implicit agreement made by the coach such as grades, work ethic, training etc...

The same people who want us to process are the people who throw stones at Alabama for the same dirty tactics.

This is a quick way to end up with a really shitty program.

I agree with you... and I hate the idiots that come on here naming players. People that do that should be processed.

Fans can't have it both ways. Demanding championships and then not allowing LSU to trade up for better players. Unfortunately, it's just the way it is these days.

There is nothing binding a player to LSU, thus, LSU should always be trying to put themselves in a better position as well.

This is just dumb as shite thinking. We have players committed to us for months if not years, bolting at the last minute leaving us in a bad spot all the time.

You cannot demand championships and then tell our staff they have to play by a higher set of standards. It's a dirty game.

At most, we may process a few each class, and this is 1000% the way it should be.

Part of their agreement is to stay competitive as a player, if they fail to do that, cut them. They didn’t get a scholarship for grades, if they did and they were failing class, scholastic scholarship would be yanked. Why the double standard?

Alabama processes a bunch of players and recruits every year. It has been working great for them.

So you think once a player commits to a program that the program should honor that commitment regardless if a better player wants that spot? OK, then go tell recruits the same thing. See how far that gets you. It's a non-binding agreement. That's why some kids will decommit on signing day and go to another school. It's a two-way street bud. And to stay in this game for a long time coaches must take the best players they can get. There's been by far more players that committed to LSU that decommitted than commits that LSU processed out. A whole lot more. That's why its a NON-BINDING agreement.

I liked LSU fans more before I started reading Tigerdroppings. Some of these posters make me embarrassed to be an LSU fan sometimes it’s pathetic.

That’s your own fault. You came to a message board. You wanted to read opinions that were the same as yours, to reinforce and placate your beliefs.

Now that you read some things that go against your values, you say that you have less respect for the fan base. That’s pretty pathetic.

Here’s a hint, LSU has a super-majority of the best fans in the United States. It’s why I became a fan in 1988 at 11 years old out of a family of Alabama fans.

I was not invited by LSU fans to become a fan. I chose the tigers even though the TIME OF UNSPEAKABLE DARKNESS in the 90s. I enjoyed the ability to walk with my Alabama family around Tiger Stadium and get offered food unlike many other places.

I enjoyed some Cajuns tiger baiting my dad in the most playful, yet rival way. Opposing fans love LSU too. Some of the Sec rangers wont admit it because they are jealous of this fan base ability to pick on , yet not offend (in more than the majority) opposing fans.

I could go on, but start enjoying this fan base and your life more.

You're assuming that being processed isn't whats best for the players.

If they aren't going to get playing time and getting buried on the depth chart, then they should move on. Go to a different school that better fits their talent.

Its not out of malice that people get processed.

I am an attorney so I know what a non-binding agreement is.

The issue is you don't know what the coaches positions are on certain players so the mass amount of people that talk about processing only take into consideration stars and rankings updates by 247 and rivals. If you know a coaches position and want to enlighten us than please. But if you read my original post, you can see that my position is to tell these knuckleheads that have no internal knowledge to stop taking information out of their arse and try to process players without any info from the coaches. That hurts the program.
